Engage in Mentoring


Welcome! Our mentoring program reflects our commitment to your professional development. This unique online networking and career development tool helps you find and connect with others. Your mentor or mentee can be in the same city or on the other side of the world. You can enroll in our Mentoring program in four simple steps:




Complete your ISHLTConnect Profile. Make sure your contact information is up to date, add a recent professional profile picture, expand on your bio and import your education and job history information from LinkedIn. Having a complete and accurate profile is crucial to the success of selection and matching. Profile complete? Return back to this page and move on to step 2.




Are you looking to be a mentor or mentee? Perhaps both? Sign up:

•  Enroll as a Mentor
•  Enroll as a Mentee




Use the ISHLT Mentoring Directory to search for mentors and/or mentees with whom you can connect online, by phone or in person. You can take advantage of features to help you find and recruit matches:

  •   Track your mentoring relationships
  •   Participate in discussion forums on mentoring topics
  •   Search for helpful mentoring resources




Congratulations! You're all set. You completed steps 1-3 and are now ready for the fun stuff. Let the mentoring begin. Do one search or multiple searches. If you're unsure of the search criteria, select "Search for ALL of the selected values." The ISHLT Mentoring Directory will do the work for you and populate the results.

Next click on the member's name that you're interested in establishing a mentor/mentee connection with. The link will bring you to their profile page. Look around. If you think it's a desired match, look under their profile image for the Mentoring Program Member badge, which when clicked will you allow you to request a connection. If it's not a desired match, you can simply select the back button to return to your previous search results.
